I'm certainly no expert but I'm fairly sure that Maya, not Max, is Alias' 3D modelling app.

Maya is Alias's 3-D app (already available for Mac OS X). Autodesk bought Alias, just as they had bought 3-D Max.

This news BTW was also reporte after MWSF, AutoCAD, 3-D Max etc is all coming to OS X!

I hope that Smoke and Inferno are too!

Maya having been available for OSX for a few years now, I assume they mean Alias' CAD based products.
Wake me up when SoftImage gets a decent Mac port. Been pleading for that for years.

SoftImage was acquired by Autodesk last year so it could happen if all their 3D apps are being ported.

Autodesk owns all three major 3D (3Dmax, Maya, Softimage) software. This has a lot of people in the 3D industry worried.
